Trades
1.
PHI
    OTT
    1. Giroux, Claude
    2. O'Brien, Jay [Reserve List]
    3. 2022 2nd round pick (PHI)
    Additional Details:
    Giroux get bought out by the Sens (or any team looking to artificial inflate their cap). The buyout costs them $3.6m in real money split over 2 years but inflates their cap by $5.6m then $1.3m. They get a pick and a B prospect for their cash. Flyers re-sign G. It's still a legal move as far as I can tell.

      2. 2021 1st round pick (PHI)

      Additional Details:
      Seattle are paid off to accept a trade for Voracek (with retention) and select a UFA contract from the Flyers at the expansion. Essentially selecting Voracek at a reduced cap hit.

        You can't have retention on a expansion pick. You can with extra players but not the actual pick

        Seattle wasn’t picking Voracek. It was said they take an expiring contract and trade for Voracek.

        In this senecio would Philly be allowed to sign Giroux? I’m not 100% sure. Ik you can’t sign a player that YOU bought out.

        They trade him to Ottawa for them to buy him out then resign him

        As flyersarephilly said Ottowa are buying him out in my scenario. That said The Flames bought out the final year of Michael Stone and then re-signed him a month later at a lower total cap hit. Turns out it was only players bought out with the compliance buyouts in 2013 and 2014 that you couldn't be re-signed until a year had passed.

        He ends up with more money. He'll get paid $5m next season in the last year of his current deal. With the buyout money and a new $4m contract he'd actually get over $6m next season and over $5m for the second year. Plus it helps the team cap wise, meaning they'd be more competitive. It's what The Caps did with Orpik a few seasons back. Traded him to The Avs who bought him out, re-signed with The Caps at about $1m.

        Holy **** this is genius, why aren't more teams/players doing this? It sounds like there has to be a rule against this lol.

        I mean it has been done before, but finding a team to buy out a player on you behalf isn't that easy I guess? There's probably only a limited number of players it's useful for in a given season (I.e. a player in the last year of their deal on a high cap but lower salary, therefore probably towards the end of their career, who is still good enough that you'll want to re-sign them, and who actually has to accept the situation in the first place).
